I consider John Banville/Benjamin Black to be one of the great contemporary writers. His characters and character descriptions are so detailed and convincing that the reader can picture and get to know the person. His stories are always interesting and often end with an unexpected twist.

Robin Sachs is one of those few who can read the phone book and be captivating. And when he reads Banville's rich and graceful prose it's just the best. The story flows seamlessly from past to present to past again. Each character is developed just fully enough to make the book sing; nothing extra. The physical descriptions of places and persons are vivid and convey the sight, sound and smell of them. I will surely come back to this book.
